Breaking new ground in Indian fantasy fiction writer Krishna Trilok to launch and discuss his first novel “Sharikrida”, followed by a Q&A session on Friday, 24th February, 2017at 6 PM in Starmark Stores, Phoenix Market City
The story is a high fantasy rooted in Indian culture sans all mythological influences, breaking new ground in Indian publishing with regards to this genre.
The plot is set in a futuristic version of the Indian subcontinent, and is built around a strong female protagonist who must hold her own in the blood games that will decide the fate of her land, and against the political intrigue that rages around her endlessly.
While the concepts of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ are usually moral compasses for most works of fiction, this tale focuses primarily on the grey area in between right and wrong, constantly treading the line between black and white.
The writing blends new age speech with the traditional high-language of fantasy to create a distinctive narrative style that focuses on transforming readerships in a time when traditional publishing is seeking new frontiers.
About Krishna Trilok
All of 23 years old, Krishna Trilok lives in Chennai, India. A great lover of a good story, he has had a keen, long-time fascination for Asian and European history and mythology.
Captivated by war movies and fairy tales right from childhood, Krishna started writing in his teens – with the sole and simple intent of creating a big battle scene set in a world of his own imagining. The result, ten years later, was his first book: Sharikrida.
Krishna hopes to write great stories that can be enjoyed by everybody. His writing is visual and direct (he says he “sees the story happening in his head and then just writes down what he’s seeing) and tries to give readers an immersive experience. It is also his hope to open up a fresh space in fantasy writing by creating a world that is totally rooted in Indian culture, but is, at the same time, not influenced by Indian mythology.
